Cry to Heaven Book Review Summary

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Cry to Heaven

The story of a young aristocrat that is forced to become one of the castrati (young boys that were castrated by the church so that they could keep their child-like voices) and an ex-castrati that is now a composer. Beautiful prose, crushingly tragic throughout but with an uplifting ending, and very real. If you don't happen to have a time machine this is the next best thing.
